Hello, I have a question about the reccomended way to create Alerts and Incidents in a monitoring application.
While reading https://developer.pagerduty.com/docs/ZG9jOjExMDI5NTgw-events-api-v2-overview it says " Previously, the Events API was used to create PagerDuty incidents from ticketing systems and various other collaboration tools. Today, we recommend using the synchronous Incidents API for this purpose."
When I go to the documentation for the incidents api (https://developer.pagerduty.com/docs/ZG9jOjExMDI5NTY0-incident-creation-api) I also find
" With this API, one can connect to a PagerDuty account and create or edit incidents on that account. This API is not to be used for connecting your monitoring tools to send events to PagerDuty; for that, use the"
I am trying to interpret what this means in regards to how I should proceed with creating my Alert Event inside my monitoring tool. Should I create the original incident with the incidents API then add an Alert Event with the events API afterwards? Is doing this supported? Or should I allow the Events API to create the alert event along with the incident at the same time?
